Brooklyn - State Senator Marty Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) is announcing his plans to host two community memorials to commemorate the 9th Anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001, on Saturday, September 11, 2010.

The first memorial will take place at 6:00 p.m. in Marine Park, entrance at Fillmore Avenue and Marine Parkway and at 8:00 p.m., Senator Golden will lead a memorial ceremony at the American Veteran’s Memorial Pier, 69th Street and Shore Road. The events will both feature a candlelight vigil and a special patriotic musical performance at the conclusion. (Please note that the mailing for the September 11th Memorial on the American Veterans Pier at 69th Street and Shore Road stated the event is at 6:00 p.m. That is incorrect. The event starts at 8:00 p.m.)

“As we approach the 9th Anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001, we remember the tragic events that took the lives of so many of our relatives, our neighbors and our fellow citizens. We can never forget those we lost that fateful morning, and we must continue to stand as strong citizens who survive them and live in the greatest nation in the world, the United States of America,” said Senator Marty Golden.

Golden continued, “Over the past nine years, we have always been together as a community at these events, because being together helps us to mourn and heal at the same time. We will join together to remember the victims and pray for them. This year, our ceremonies will be followed by a patriotic musical performance to be offered in the memory of those lost, and to support those who survive them.”

All are invited to join with Senator Golden at the memorials. American Flags and candles will be distributed to those in attendance. For additional information, please contact Senator Golden’s office (718) 238-6044.
